It was only a short city break but Dresden does not stop amazing us. The hotel is located right behind the Frauenkirche cathedral and offers a spectacular river view (only from two or three rooms though). Our executive room was tidy and spacious. The executive lounge was a bit of a disappointment and the breakfast was not the best I had ever had either. The reception staff seemed a bit overwhelmed by all the Russian guests who tended to be quite demanding and sometimes rude.

A great hotel in the heart of old Dresden. Not overly "authentic," but the location in the centre of everything was just the ticket two days and night. Good food around the central square, great wine stube and absolutely fit the bill for us. an upgrade to a corner suite overlooking the church and central square -- the room was much bigger than our entire apartment -- with free wifi, TVs seemingly everywhere, guest loo in addition to the one for the "owners," great bed, excellent work space, dining table and on and on. The value was incredible.
Executive lounge had good wine, nice snacks and lots to read. Breakfast excellent.
Highly recommneded if get a suite, can't really say otherwise, but simply a terrific stay.

Room Tip: The corner suites are absolutely delightful.

We stayed at the Hilton Dresden for a weekend getaway. It is definitely an "american style" hotel, which we like because we are Americans living in Germany and it gives us a taste of home. The locations is amazing- a short walk to all of the main attractions. We had reserved a corner suite and had requested the one with modern decor because we had seen pictures on their website of 2 different styles. Unfortunately the first night it wasn't available, so we stayed in the other corner suite which was more of an "old Europe" style and switched to the modern one for the second night. Both suites were nice and had amazing views of the Frauenkircke. There were nice touches like a fresh fruit bowl and chocolates for our daughter. Also,because we stayed on the "executive" level, lounge access is included where there was a nice breakfast buffet, tea time snacks, and happy hour drinks and appetizers. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi's (one inside/one outside) were very nice. We didn't use the gym, but it also looked very nice. Anything we needed they were very accommodating. They even had a baby monitor system that we could use so we could have a drink in the lounge while our daughter slept in the room.

Didn't like this Hotel at all.The only thing going for it is the location, though once there, saw there were a couple of other Hotels in that location. Wish I had known that before. The place is like a big barn. No ambience.. Seems to me to be more of a business hotel, than anything else.
Don't expect anyone to help with luggage, when you arrive, because you'll be doing it yourself.
Check in was 2pm, room wasn't ready at 4pm, think we actually got into room at about 5pm.
Reception staff not very friendly or helpful at any time. We had paid for a Junior Suite, which was an absolute waste of money. It consisted of two levels, downstairs a small sitting area, then via a spiral staircase, the upstairs bedroom, bathroom, meal area.Not much fun lugging 2 heavy suitcases up those spiral stairs. It was a pointless setup. There was no reason to sit downstairs, as everything was upstairs.The Club lounge evening drinks and food, went for a couple of hours, and they were generous with the drinks, it was a help yourself fridge, but if you came after the first half hour, there was barely any food left. A number of people would come in later,see all the food platters empty, and walk out. We went to two of the Hotel Restaurants, very ordinary, service the same. As for wi fi, there was none. Said only have this problem with Apple products. Well my ipad worked at every other hotel we stayed in, so don't understand this excuse.Thought this hotel really needs to lift its game. Was very disappointed .

This hotel is right at the historic town center of Dresden. You start with parking your car at the garage under the hotel.
You have walking distance to all the famous sights as Frauenkirche, Semperoper, Bruhlsche Terrace, Zwinger...... all just around the corner!

The hotel offers the "typical hilton" feeling, nothing new there, but certainly you can count on nice modern rooms, new washrooms, great restaurants, polite staff.

Once you visit Dresden, you should not miss seeing the "Neustadt", which is the newer part of Dresden, located just over the bridge, crossing the Elbe river.
It's a bit off the beaten track, there is shoping and urban living, and certainly its not packed with tourists there. You'll get a little "German" feeling :-)

This hotel has an excellent city centre location, within walking distance of all the main sights.
We booked an executive room which included access to the Executive lounge. This entitled us to wine, beer and champagne each evening while enjoying a couple of tasty hot snacks and several cold snacks, plus biscuits and cheese. An ample breakfast was offered each morning too, which again included hot and cold dishes. Very worthwhile!
Our room was of a decent size and very well equipped with safe, fridge, iron, ironing board as well as robes and slippers. My one complaint was that I would have preferred a walk in shower in the bathroom, not an over the bath shower. However there was plenty space to lay out toilet bags etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor. Some rooms do have views of the river.
